Tethered cord syndrome (TCS) is a rare and intractable disease. The aim of this study was to investigate the surgical outcome of homogeneous spinal-shortening axial decompression (HSAD) for TCS through a minimum 3-year follow-up.

The aim of this study was to evaluate the surgical outcomes of homogeneous spinal-shortening axial decompression (HSAD) for the reoperation in child patients with tethered cord syndrome.
To evaluate the spinal cord injury range in the patients with tethered cord syndrome who have urinary incontinence.
Tethered cord syndrome (TCS), a neurological disorder characterized by the lower settlement of the conus medullaris, is a congenital spinal disease which is caused by split cord syndrome, meningomyelo...
Fibrous bands are one of the causes of tethered cord syndrome and these can be located on the dorsal or more rarely, ventral aspect of the dura mater. We report a case of dorsal and ventral tethering ...
Spinal cord stimulation (SCS) is an evidence - based treatment for chronic neuropathic pain, however there is a dearth of evidence investigating this modality in patients with tethered cord syndrome (...
Background: Tethered cord syndrome (TCS) is a progressive clinical condition including a series of neurological dysfunctions and deformities attributable to abnormally increased tension on...
When patients suffer from chronic pain after multiple back surgeries, this is denominated as the 'failed back surgery syndrome'. A possible treatment for these patients is spinal cord stim...
This pilot clinical trial studies how well tethered capsule endoscope works in screening patients with Barret's esophagus (BE), a condition where the lining of the esophagus has changed or...
The purpose of this study is to assess the acute and chronic effectiveness of the Advanced Bionics Precision(TM) Spinal Cord Stimulation System in subjects with failed back surgery syndrom...
Shoulder pain in people with spinal cord injury is one of the most prevalent in acute and chronic patients because of weakness in shoulder periarticular muscles, and also because of overus...
A syndrome associated with traumatic injury to the cervical or upper thoracic regions of the spinal cord characterized by weakness in the arms with relative sparing of the legs and variable sensory loss. This condition is associated with ischemia, hemorrhage, or necrosis involving the central portions of the spinal cord. Corticospinal fibers destined for the legs are spared due to their more external location in the spinal cord. This clinical pattern may emerge during recovery from spinal shock. Deficits may be transient or permanent.
A common congenital midline defect of fusion of the vertebral arch without protrusion of the spinal cord or meninges. The lesion is also covered by skin. L5 and S1 are the most common vertebrae involved. The condition may be associated with an overlying area of hyperpigmented skin, a dermal sinus, or an abnormal patch of hair. The majority of individuals with this malformation are asymptomatic although there is an increased incidence of tethered cord syndrome and lumbar SPONDYLOSIS. (From Joynt, Clinical Neurology, 1992, Ch55, p34)
Pathologic conditions which feature SPINAL CORD damage or dysfunction, including disorders involving the meninges and perimeningeal spaces surrounding the spinal cord. Traumatic injuries, vascular diseases, infections, and inflammatory/autoimmune processes may affect the spinal cord.
Reduced blood flow to the spinal cord which is supplied by the anterior spinal artery and the paired posterior spinal arteries. This condition may be associated with ARTERIOSCLEROSIS, trauma, emboli, diseases of the aorta, and other disorders. Prolonged ischemia may lead to INFARCTION of spinal cord tissue.
A syndrome associated with damage to the spinal cord above the mid thoracic level (see SPINAL CORD INJURIES) characterized by a marked increase in the sympathetic response to minor stimuli such as bladder or rectal distention. Manifestations include HYPERTENSION; TACHYCARDIA (or reflex bradycardia); FEVER; FLUSHING; and HYPERHIDROSIS. Extreme hypertension may be associated with a STROKE.

Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
